    This is a wonderful site to be a part of. very informational and life experiences as well. I was diagnosed in 2012 with ovarian cancer, after surgery; to remove my tumor, they realized it was my appendix. I had the HIPEC surgery after that. did 17 rounds of chemo, now I am just living one day to the next, since another surgery to remove the rest of the cancer is out of the question. I do hope you can get some good use of this site, any questions please ask me. God Bless You on Your Journey.

      Thank you for taking the time to answer and comment. I sure an sorry that you have had to go through all that! I have a Q for you, why do you say because another surgery is out of the question? I think I am amazingly blessed.I truly bellieve that ALL I will need to do is the RT. bowel resectioning. I am going back Tuesday to review everything..BUT they also mentioned the HIPEC....but didnt say it was "necesary", but it is on the table..I think I want to ASK them to do it, as I want all this wiped out of my body...Any thoughts?

      I totally believe in the HIPEC. It allows the doctors to clean out any cancer that is in there and then they; do the chemo right then. It is a tough surgery, but if you have to have bowel resectioning done, they have you open to to do that then. Write your questions down on paper so you don't forget anything and ask a lot of questions. When they did mine there was cancer there that they could not get at because where it is located so they had to leave some. Since finishing chemo, I am feeling much better, some days I forget I have cancer, so I am quessing that the chemo they did inside me did some good !!! I pray you get the answers you want on Tuesday, I will be praying for you. God Bless
